Good going, Giuseppe!  I haven't seen it yet, but I'll track it down on the web.  One of the theaters here is doing a one night only showing of the live-action Death Note movie.  I gotta find out the day and time and hope that I haven't already missed it.  I just picked up Black Lagoon Second Barrage, so that'll keep me busy for a while.



EDIT:  Just saw the Dead Space trailer....WOW!!  The video game looks off the hook, too!

If you are able to see the Death Note movie be sure to give it the doo-rag rating! I would like to see a live action GANTZ or BLOOD plus movie

Yeah those would be cool...Gantz would be cool as hell live, but I think it would be better as a live-action cable series since it's more of a mission based series.  Blood+ could be more like a series of Blade movies with a supporting cast already in place.  Have you seen any of the Full Metal Panic stuff?

Its old news now, but I picked up the complete Rahxephon on DVD.  I really enjoyed it.

Gotham Knights was pretty good too.

If you like superhero stuff, try the Gatchaman OVA DVD collection.

Big anime watcher here, hell we even rent over 4k dvdes at the LCS I work at.  I have a problem finding or watching anime after Ive watched something soo good.  I did the whole Naruto (fansubbed of course), Bleach (same way)...but Ive watched an anime last year and it was so good I can't even get into anything else.  Its so good, nothing compares in my book...

...give me something that will blow my mind like Claymore.  That has to be my top anime SERIES of all time.

Help us help you marv what have you seen besides claymore? what types of anime do you like? action? drama? comedy? sci-fi? I liked Gantz, Iria: Zeram the animation, Desert Punk, Samurai 7, Basilisk, Baki the grappler, Ninja scrolls the series, Blood +, Ghost in the shell:SAC (Stand alone complex). Almost forgot to add Death Note (easily the hottest anime this year)

With a recommendation like that from Marvelous, I gotta put a rush on getting my grubby little hands on the Claymore series.  I wonder when we'll get the new Golgo 13 series over here...is it too late to change my anime thread name to Duke Togo?  8)

Yeah, man...I just hope it's better than Queen Bee.  I think the new series has been on in Japan since May or so....what does that mean for US release dates?

All of the above Karas!  I pretty much like everything but in the action badassness...I cant find nothing better than Claymore.  Im waiting to see what they come out with next season in Japan.  I believe its a few more weeks.
